    Where Love Goes To Grow

    We all have an environment in which we feel most comfortable. Some people love the beach, others the mountains, and still others like open fields and rolling hills.   I have always adored the woods. I like the trees, the woodland creatures that reside there, the rivers that...

    Trees are essential to life!

    Stop cutting them down! I love going into a forest, the woods, and taking off my clothes. It's happy communing with one equals in vegetation.

    brought the kids out

    for some fresh air & exercise. the smell of the wood, the sound of the leaves... I don't get as much time in nature as I'd like, so I'm thoroughly soaking this all in.

    The forest is where the elementals reside.

    The faeries, the elves, so many other nature spirits.. These are our ancestors. I love the woods. Tranquil energy. Like a protective bubble. You come out feeling recharged. With +vibes 😌🌲✨

    Oh, love everything about the woods.

    Always enchanted by it. Have seen pockets of rainforest here, beautiful as well. But a walk down any path in PA forests is always top of my list when I make the trip back to visit family.

    I go out in the woods nearly everyday,

    there's some right behind my house. It's so peaceful, and really calming.

    I grew up amongst a giant forest,

    every inch holding a new, mysterious gift. As a child, it was my safe haven, my playground, full of magic. The old logging trails were as familiar as my heartbeat. Nowadays, the fear taught to me by city living follows me everywhere. Instead of seeing the beauty in every broken...

    I spent this past weekend hiking

    and camping. This weekend was a welcomed breath of fresh air. It was so nice to disconnect no signal. Hoping to get some hiking in again this coming weekend.

    I love the privacy there,

    and I love all of the risks. I love that there's a small chance I could never be found. I love the animals there and the noises. I love being in the woods during thunderstorms. I just love it in general.

    i grew up in the woods.

    Quite often, I find myself day dreaming of

    running off into the woods to live. How peaceful that would be. Camping, or hiking, when the time comes to depart, it is always to soon, leaving my soul with an empty feeling, a longing. Once a week, I trek through the trees, bag swung over my shoulder. I let the Earth speak to...

    Hiking through the woods is a great way to

    unwind. What's even better is finding a small clearing, laying on my back, and looking up at the autumn leaves slowly floating down from the treetops. This is my kind of day October day.

    I literally have the entire woods in my backyard

    and beyond mapped out. It's kind of sad honestly. I've snuck out so many times just to be in the woods. Even slept in a shelter I made from sticks/fallen trees. It's gotten to the point where I'm naming trees and rocks. What am I doing with my life?

    My wife and I watched Naked

    and Afraid on T.V. last night. We found it exciting. We are making plans to spend 24 hours in the woods totally naked with only matches, a pot and a knife. We are not daring enough to go any longer yet. Will have to see how this goes when it warms up a little more.

    Bluebells

    Walking through pathways,

    My Rustic Sensibilities

    Woods appeal to my rustic sensibilities.   They almost have an ethereal and mystical quality for me that I find really enchanting. When the sunlight trickles down through the foliage and casts warm tones and hues in the forest and I see how the light sparkles through the canopy...

    Four years ago I moved to a big city

    and I swear I went through "forest withdrawal" or something. The lack of trees and animals was really depressing at first, and I nearly moved back home. I grew up surrounded by the woods and even after four years I still miss all the nature. In the spring and summer I go out...

    There's something so good about being in the

    woods, alone, in the dark. Feeling so vulnerable and free. Smoke leaving my lips whilst looking up at the dark trees and moonlit sky.

    I Live In The Woods

    Our house is in the woods our drive is like a 1/2 mile long. You can't see our house from the road. We live on a river and from our shore you can't see any other houses. I love where we live.

    I enjoy walking in the woods at every season

    of the year.  To me, trees are a majestic reminder of the mighty God we serve. They shade us from the summer's hot sunshine, delight our eyes with their fall colors and when they bud out in the spring, they remind us that summer is on its way. In the winter they combine with...

    The woods is my favourite place,

    I spend a lot of time. I love the cool breeze on your skin, the smell of trees and leaves along with other animals, seeing the stars at night and hearing the birds and insects crawling around. I love the feeling of the grass in between my toes.

    Right now. This is where I need to be.

    Alone, comforted by Mother Nature, soothing me, as I sob at my wretched self and she does not turn away. No demands are made of me here. Just to see and feel and inhale and exhale. And be. Let me finally sleep soundly. Take away my busy thoughts from a world far away...

    Trees take so long to grow

    that they live in a time outside ours. A single tree lives across generations of us, so a wood brings us the wonderful and spiritual in a way not many places can. There is a sense of otherness within its boundaries. There is peace, regeneration and wildness for us there.

    go camping for a week. No technology. No city. No people. Just me and the earth around. But not a campsite. Too busy and modernized. I want pure nature. Near a river. Lots of pines, with plenty of others rustling in the breeze. The clatter of pine cones falling in the distance...
